Philippians is full of wonderful advice for caregivers, like this passage from 4:5:-7.
Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
For that matter, it's also great advice to share with our grandkids! In fact, this Scripture is perfect for all of us in the Sandwich Generation, don't you think? These encouraging Bible verses are definitely ones I want to be meditating on today and throughout this month so I also used this cute country clipart and Scripture to make a wallpaper for my iPhone -
as well as a cute coloring page for our grandkids. I hope you enjoy these as well.
Life is full of things to cause us to be anxious and that's especially true for those of us in the Sandwich Generation. I'm so grateful that God has told us to pray about everything (and trust me, as my grandkids will tell you – I DO pray about EVERYTHING, whether it's a lost toy or a friend battling cancer or kids arguing with each other or dealing with computer woes or…), AND has promised us HIS PEACE – truly a blessed gift in the fruit of the Spirit for all of us!
P.S. Thank you so much for your comments. I appreciate them very much and read each one. I also do my best to reply to them all but, as you can imagine, there are times (many times, lately :) ) when caregiving needs do not allow for that. Thank you for your patience and your sweet comments.
